BK, one summer or fall of piling sawdust in and around that bus and you guys would have a fair to middling bus to cruise in.Cody -
BK's love of Setra's would make that a fun project, even tho he'd have to figure out how to work around the sunken aisle design of that model.
About the only way to level the floor in the S215/217 series is to do a roof raise, because the baggage bay door mechanisms and the powertrain support framing is hidden under the raised portions of the floor.
Neat thing about them, tho, is their fantastically tight turning circle and great highway handling - sort of the BMW of buses. (Far better handling than their Belgian competitor NanFools, that's for sure!) The forty-foot S215 has a 35-foot turning circle - tighter than it's own length!
In the meantime, hopefully Outlaw will get together with another busnut or bus mechanic to take a look at that 4905, just to get an idea of what's out there.
FWIW & HTH. . .
